PM PUBLISHED BY TI-IE STUDENTS OF TRACY UNION I-HGH SCHOOL TRACY . CALIFORNIA '44 TRACY oN'Ofv -JN U in 2 4 1 YY 25 YJ, Senior lilo tto Wonut fffort Kring! Succeu bedication We, lhe sludenls of Tracy Union High School, dedicale fhis annual lo our fellow srudenls and alumni who have given so much above and beyond Jrhe call of duly fhaf lhey will reiurn no more. Our grafifude and deep apprecia- lion go 'ro +hese honored dead who proudly gave lheir lives 'rhaf freedom may live. Our fellow sfudenfs and alumni have made su- preme sacrifices-may we keep fai+h wi+h fhem. To us from lailing hands lhey lhrow fhe lorch. Be ours lo hold il high! If we brcalr lailh wilh Those who die They shall nor sleep. lhough poppies blow ln nafivc fields. S pfihdi al 14 euage The El Por+al comes To us as a piciorial his'rory of rhe adminisirarion, faculfy, sfudenfs and +radi+ions of Tracy Union High School. We are deeply indebied ro 'rhe faculiy advisor, Miss Thomas, and fo 'rhe El Porral sfaff for iheir unriring eliforfs in +he developmeni of rhis well organized and accuraie wriH'en record. The cenrral 'rheme of El Por+al is bofh 'rimely and opporlune. The ferm Freedom draws our rhinlcing back +0 'rhe Declaralion of Independence: We hold rhese Trurhs 'ro be self-evident fhar all men are creared equal, fhar +hey are endowed by rheir Crealer wirh ceriain unalienable Righis, rhaf among These are Life, Liberry, and 'rhe Pursuir of Happiness. Thai +o secure rhese righfs, Governmenrs are insrifured among men, deriving iheir iusr powers from 'rhe consenf of 'rhe governed. The idea of freedom is so much a parf of our American life and 'rradirion +ha+ we had come ro fake ir for granred uniil a greaf world crisis shocked us info faking a new view of rhe fenefs of our Narional Fairh. School life and +he school curriculum in Tracy Union High School reflecr a defer- mined desire for Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Self-govern- menr, and Freedom +o preserve 'rhe Righ+s of Man. These principles become a realify in The individual lives of all of us. We hold 'rhe Bill of Righrs 'ro be significanr in rhe lives of rhe siudenfs. The ideals of folerance and brofherhood find an expression in fhe social life of rhe young people. Siudenfs are encouraged fo parficipafe in social acfiviiies and in The acrivifies of sfudenf self-government Srudenrs learn fo accepr responsibiliry and will carry fhis 'rraining in+o +he communify, in'ro rhe S+a're, and info fhe Na+ion. Freedom is nor generally undersrood because we 'rhinlc ser'ousIy of i+ only in ifs absence, or when if is endangered. I+ occurs ro us Ihaf we are no' free when we are resfrained from doing somelhing which we wanl' Io do. Freedom is reIa?ive Io our purposes and desires. We simply 'ralce if for granfed when we have if and we iight for il when il is almosl or enlirely gone. The world Ioday is aflame in Ihe grealesl and moslr coslly Iighf lor Freedom 'mal man has ever imagined. Our friends. sons, and brolhers are Iighling, bleeding, and dying in order Ihal men and women may be Iree. During Ihe war be-Iween 'rhe Sfares ABRAI-IAM LINCOLN, in his second inaugural address, expressed greal and beauliiul words which are applicable Ioday. Wi+h malice Ioward none-wilh charily lor ali--wifh firmness in Ihe righl, as God gives us fo see 'rhe righl, lei us sfrive on ro finish Ihe work we are in-'ro bind up Ihe Naliorfs wounds-'ro care lor him who shall have borne Ihe baffle, and lor his widow, and his orphan-Io do all which may achieve and cherish a iusl and Iasling peace among ourselves, and wilh all Nalionsf' The earnesr desire in Tracy Union High School is Ihal Ihe above senlimenls may become a realify among Ihe people and nafions of Ihe earlh.
